The Genocidal Gaze
From German Southwest Africa To The Third Reich
Sobre o livro
The first genocide of the twentieth century, though not well known, was committed by Germans between 1904-1907 in the country we know today as Namibia, where they exterminated thousands of Herero and Nama people. In The Genocidal Gaze, Elizabeth R. Baer uses the trope of the gaze to trace linkages between the genocide of the Herero and Nama and that of the victims of the Holocaust.
